CHICAGO, IL – The Illinois Department of Transportation has issued a weather advisory for residents across Illinois, warning of a significant weather shift expected to hit the state tonight. 

Southern Illinois is bracing for heavy rain, which could lead to ponding in areas with poor drainage. Meanwhile, Northern Illinois faces a different challenge as a wintery mix is forecasted to begin tonight and continue through Friday evening, raising concerns about slippery roads and hazardous driving conditions.

Authorities urge residents to exercise caution, particularly when driving. The expected slippery conditions demand extra attention – motorists are advised to turn on their headlights, slow down, and increase their stopping distances to ensure safe travel.
